Ghost Voyages 3: Endeavour & Resolution

by Cora Taylor

Ghost Voyages 3: Endeavour & Resolution
Jeremy's back in the past again, this time aboard John Cabot's ship as he first lands on the shores of what will be called Newfoundland.

Jeremy's third amazing voyage is on Captain Cook's famous ships - the Endeavour and the Resolution - to Antarctica, Vancouver Island, Australia, and Hawaii.

It all started when Jeremy opened his grandfather's old stamp album. He picked up a magnifying glass for a quick look - at a beautiful stamp bearing the painting of a ship - and the next thing he knew he was standing on its deck! He had found an incredible way to travel through time and distance and soon experienced many wonderful adventures.

Now Jeremy's life may change. His father has remarried and wants Jeremy to come and visit him and his new wife. Jeremy doesn't know how this will change his life. Things may be difficult in the everyday world, but Jeremy has another place he can go - to the beautiful sailing ships on his stamps.

His new adventure takes him to some of the world's most exciting places, in the company of one of the greatest explorers - the stormy seas near Antarctica; the shores of Australia and Hawaii; and as far north as Vancouver Island. Jeremy meets many dangers that test his character, and he even meets his own grandson, a time traveller from the future!

From the author: There are lots of reasons why I became a writer. One version has to do with an aunt, my mother's older sister, who died before I was born. Our home was filled with pictures of this beautiful young woman in a wedding dress and I heard stories about her all the time. She came to be almost a fairy tale character to me. She was buried in the family plot in her wedding dress as was the custom then. To add to her legend, I was told that her grieving husband had gone to Lake of the Woods in Ontario where they had spent their honeymoon to have her tombstone made from a rock they used to sit beside. Since his last name was Love, that was the word the filled the top of this stone. Enough for any child to create a fairy tale. One day when I was snooping through my grandmother's desk I came upon a bundle of her letters home. Reading them, my fairy tale princess suddenly became a real person. She was warm and she was very funny - and suddenly she was alive to me. At that moment I realized how people you've never met can reach out and touch you. It was something I might have figured out from the books I read but it took this very personal situation to make me want to be a writer and reach people I would never get to know.
